The Primary level serves children between the ages of 2½ and 6-plus years. The overall goal of a Montessori class is to provide an environment that meets the needs and tendencies of the child at this stage of their development.
By encouraging exploration, independence, personalized education, and freedom within limits, the child is called to work within the learning environment to “unfold” their potential at their own pace. The pace of the young child is respected with the understanding that the particular learning path of each child cannot be hurried. With an authentic learning environment that fosters such independence and freedom, the young child acquires the ability to problem solve and develop a better understanding of self, while balancing time within a consistent and predictable place.
Join our Young Children’s Community and Primary teachers for a series of fall classes that will focus on specific topics such as baking, gardening, animals, and more to help parents parent, learn Montessori principles, and have fun!
Post Oak’s fall Parent & Child class is an engaging and interactive experience designed to nurture your toddler/child's development while fostering a strong bond between you and your child. This course follows the principles of the Montessori philosophy, promoting independence, exploration, and a love for learning in a supportive and stimulating environment.
During this fall class, parents and their children (aged 18 months to 6 years) will embark on a journey of discovery, curiosity, and joyful exploration. Guided by experienced Post Oak Montessori educators, you will have the opportunity to actively participate in your child's learning journey and gain valuable insights into Montessori principles and practices.
At Post Oak’s Montessori Journey night, I experienced something of what it would be like to be four years old in that room—allowed to choose the work that most interests me, do it without interruption, move at a pace that suits me. I imagined this being my daughter’s experience. Then I flashed forward to a vision of the woman that experience would help shape: someone deeply in touch with her own interests and motivations; someone relatively unencumbered by the opinions—good or bad—of others; a person who knows how to make her own choices and pursue them with focused intensity.Lana Rigsby
